Former BBC studios to become ‘worldclass’ medical facility

Birmingham’s Edgbaston Medical Quarter (EMQ) has received ‘the green light’ to improve the mix and medical facilities at Pebble Mill, the site of the former BBC Studios.

The application, submitted by investor and developer, Calthorpe Estates, has been granted for outline planning permission to transform Building 4 at Pebble Mill into a 9,000 m2 ‘world-class healthcare facility’.

 

The proposed building will be positioned between Circle Health’s new private hospital and rehabilitation centre and the Birmingham NHS Dental Hospital. While for over 30 years, Pebble Mill was home to BBC television studios, the area is now being ‘transformed’ into a 27-acre medical development, to include hospitals, healthcare centres, and ‘cutting edge’ medical facilities. 

Bupa Care Homes’ 62-room care centre and the Birmingham Dental Hospital & School of Dentistry have already opened on the site, and work has started on Circle Health’s new 19,000 m2 private hospital and rehabilitation centre. Once completed, Pebble Mill will offer over 50,000 m2 of medical and healthcare facilities. 

Ralph Minott, director of development for Calthorpe Estates, said: “Calthorpe Estates has the capacity within this expanded proposal to now attract world-leading specialists and pioneering medical offers to Edgbaston Medical Quarter at Building 4.”
